Fascinating, efficient, and fun

Mauhan has got a real winner going. SSBT breaks down technologies that we all touch every day, reminds us how little we understand them, and shows us just how transformative they have the potential to be. The guests are solid, knowledgeable folks and Mauhan does a good job bringing out what they know and slowing them down when necessary. One of my new favorites, for sure.

Great and easy to understand.

Very informative for non-tech types. Can’t wait for the next episode.

Phil Lubin ,

Now I know what things mean

It’s a great breakdown of buzzwords that we “should” know, but don’t and makes it digestible. It’s like tech for dummies. Love it.
